MiR-34a-3p alters proliferation and apoptosis of meningioma cells in vitro and is directly targeting SMAD4, FRAT1 and BCL2

Figure 3. Overexpression of miR-34a-3p decreases meningioma cell proliferation. Ben-Men-1 cells were transfected with either miR-34a-3p (mimic), scrambled control or left untransfected (A) or anti-miR-34a-3p (inhibitor), scrambled control or left untransfected (B). Cells were harvested and counted at indicated time points after transfection. Proliferation assays were performed in triplicate. Values are means ± SD (**, P < 0.01). Total cell counts are given in Supplemental Tables S1 and S2.
